Champions of Change
Nana Firman has been involved in developing urban community garden in Southern California and encouraging the American Muslim community to practice eco-lifestyle, which then led her to become a member of the Green Mosque Initiative for Islamic Society of North America. Nana previously worked with the World Wildlife Fund in Indonesia for several years, directing the recovery efforts in the wake of earthquake and tsunami, and has also worked with Muslim leaders in Indonesia to create climate resiliency plans. Climate change is not just an environmental problem, but for the people of faith like her, it is a moral and ethical issue and has already affected many vulnerable communities globally. She is currently coordinating Muslim outreach for OurVoices, a global faith and spiritual climate action network.
